|Jatropha is a tree or shrub indigenous of Central America. The plant has over 1,500 species and has been transported to the world’s tropical and semi tropical areas hundreds of years ago. The species is extremely hardy and is thus able to grow in very dry climactic conditions and low production and non-arable soils and thus does not compete with most food crops.||
|Most Jatropha Curcas seeds currently contain oil content in the mid 30’s % but GFE Global through its advanced cultivation methods has already obtained verifiable oil content yields in the high 40% range and is working on obtaining even higher oil content yields.
Goldman Sachs recently cited Jatropha Curcas as one of the best candidates for future bio-diesel production.
Time Magazine recently cited the potential for as much as 1,600 gallons of diesel fuel per acre per year ……. (but due to this young industries limited years in production this type of yield has not been obtained yet on a large commercial scale.)
Other Reliable Sources have stated Jatropha is the best source of bio-jet fuels and has been successfully tested by various commercial airlines and the U.S. Armed Forces.
